The Adult Education and Family Literacy Department at Paris Junior College has set orientation dates for General Education Development (GED) classes and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, according to Director Krista McAdamis.
All new and returning students are required to attend one of the orientation sessions in order to complete the intake paperwork and the testing. Class dates and times will be given out at orientation. Students will need to attend an orientation session in July or August in order to be
permitted to start class in September.
All classes are offered at no cost to the student. However, students must commit to attend class each day and meet program requirements to accomplish learning goals. All students must complete a baseline and progress test and adhere to attendance policy rules and department requirements. Sixteen-year-olds must be court ordered and submit a copy of this document prior to the first class day. Seventeen-year-old students must submit a copy of a school withdrawal form from the last school attended prior to the first class day. Seventeen-year-olds may also be court ordered to attend GED classes at Paris Junior College. Parents or guardians of 16 or 17 year old students must complete release form information prior to the first day of class.
GED and literacy day class orientation will be held at Paris Junior College Rheudasil Learning Center, Adult Education Classroom, from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday, July 27, or Friday, August 31. Evening class orientation will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Tuesday, August 21, or Tuesday, August 28.
